Graduation Caps

It's that time again and today I'm sharing a couple of Graduation Caps from last year ......    

Graduation Cap Gift Box

For the graduation cap boxes, I started with the trapezoid box from Tags Bags Boxes and More 2 and added holes for ribbon and then added a folded card for the top of the ‘cap’, also with two holes for the ribbon.  This box can be used for money, sweets, jewelry, or the keys to that brand new car!

Once the box and top is folded, I ran ribbon through a button, through the top into the box and secured it, pulling the top tight to the box.

Graduation Cap Pocket Card

For this pocket card, I used the same card image from Tags Bags Boxes and More 2, also adding a button and tassel to mimic a graduation cap.

The inside consists of a pocket to hold anything from cash, gift cards, a note of congratulations or maybe even the keys to that new car!

Like with the box top, I added two small holes to the card image to thread ribbon through holding the button in place. The ribbon tails are taped inside before adding the pocket details.

Score the scalloped piece at 4 3/4 to create the pocket.  Before adhering it into a pocket I ran just the front flap through the Cuttlebug.
